Great- Excellent Food and service. My #1 pick for Sushi

I can't think of another Sushi restaurant where I have had better sushi than here at Yanagi. I am not talking about their normal sushi rolls--- which are just that --normal and ordinary, just like all the other places. However, their speciality rolls are fantastic--- full of flavour and... read more

My husband and I first went to Yanagi two weeks ago for a date night. The place is small, but the ambiance and decor are fabulous for a nice night out. The menu had LOTS of sushi options and a pretty decent selection of sake. We liked everything so much we went back last weekend again. Great place. I really... More

I was introduced to Yanagi over 4 years ago and I still consider it my favorite sushi in the country. Friends I've taken here even agree with me on my claim so if you're wondering, yes, the sushi is that good. It's a small place that you may miss but it's well worth turning around to get to. You can... More

I loved their sushi, I live close by and I didn't know that there's a really good sushi restaurant close to my house.

Small narrow restaurant - almost qualifies as a "hole in the wall, but great food. Shared dishes with DH & DD and 7 dishes were plenty for lunch. Excellent - toro sashimi, salmon avocado roll, short rib roll & crab roll. Good - seaweed salad, OK - crab hand roll - oil wasn't hot enough, so the soft shell crabs... More

Our party of three enjoyed tasty sushi and non-traditional Japanese food. Rather a small place, it was still quite a nice place to experience high quality sushi. Having observed other dishes coming from the kitchen, I felt the presentation was good...made your mouth water. Some have comments not to get the table near as it is cld and drafty. I... More

Small place with great food. Very family friendly and reasonable prices. The only thing that I didn't like was the service. The waitress seemed mad to see us, gave horrible service and never onced smiled. I will think twice befor going back because of this.

This is a little place but it's cozy. It gets busy at night and at lunch because the food is good. Their sushi is fresh. Service is good. My son loves their California roll with cream cheese and sashimi. I tried half and half and it's good too. it has shrimp and a paper rice type of roll. In addition,... More

This is a small up-scale sushi restaurant located in an drab, small,parking lot shared with Ace Hardware. Once you go inside you forget about the location. Beautiful decor, great ambiance, FABULOUS FOOD. I have been there aprox. 6 times for lunch & or dinner and the sushi is super fresh & delicious. (I am very picky about my sushi).

Good local sushi place. Friendly owners. Fresh fish. Could use a few more unique rolls, but otherwise a very good meal. We have dined there about 10 times. Great pricing.
